Mother Retains Child Custody After Appellate Court Motion is Granted, Staying the Family Court's Decision and Order after Trial.
After the Suffolk County Family Court ordered the immediate transfer of
custody, of a 12 year old child from the mother to the father, the mother
turned to our law firm for expedited assistance. Our firm filed a motion
seeking an immediate stay of the Family Court's decision after trial,
pending the final determination of the appeal. The Appellate Division,
Second Department, granted an immediate stay pending the final decision
of the appeal. The child was able to remain in the physical custody of
his mother during the holidays and shall remain in her custody until a
final decision is made on appeal.
Order of Protection Dismissed Against Father
Attorney Natasha Meyers was hired to represent a father who was removed
from his house and his two young children (ages 3 and 6) under a stay
away order of protection that his wife obtained ex parte. At the first
court hearing for the case, which occurred only two days after the father
was served with the court papers, Attorney Meyers requested an immediate
trial. The Suffolk County Family Court granted the request and held an
immediate trial that same day. After a hearing, Attorney Meyers succeeded
in getting the entire Order of Protection dismissed against her client.
Obtained temporary custody
Attorney Natasha Meyers recently helped a father obtain temporary
of his 5-year-old child. Custody was originally awarded to the mother,
but less than a year later the father brought her back to Brooklyn family
court, concerned that the academic and medical needs of their child were
not being met. Attorney Meyers helped her client file an emergency petition
for temporary custody with the court. Without even needing a hearing,
the court granted the emergency petition and the child was placed in temporary
custody of the father.
Modification to child support
Attorney Natasha Meyers recently helped a mother obtain a much-needed modification to her
order. Our client asked her ex-husband to help her pay the costs of their
daughter's college tuition, because she could not afford to do so
on her own. When the ex-husband refused to assist with their child's
tuition, Attorney Meyers assisted our client with filing for modification
with the Suffolk County Family Court. The court ruled that the ex-husband
should be responsible for 50% of his daughter's tuition costs and
mandatory fees, and the child support order was modified.

Modification to child support
The Meyers Law Group recently completed representation of a father sued for
in Nassau Family Court. The mother claimed she had no income. Natasha

Degree in nursing and was in school. This drastically changed the parties'
respective obligations towards the costs for day care for their young
child as well as the costs for unreimbursed medical costs for the parties' child.

Dismissed Temporary Order of Protection
Our Client was served with a full Stay Away Temporary Order of Protection
that was issued on an
ex parte basis by the Family Court, County of Suffolk. After retaining The Meyers
Law Group, P.C., to represent him in this matter, on our first appearance
in Court with our client, our attorneys fought vigorously in Court for
our client's rights, demonstrating to the Family Court that the allegations
set forth in the Petitioner's Petition were legally insufficient to
warrant an Order or Protection. As a result of our attorney's efforts,
the Family Court, Suffolk County, vacated the previously entered Stay
Away Temporary Order of Protection, dismissing the action in its entirety
in one week of hiring the firm!
